National Hockey League team, Carolina Hurricanes became the first team to unveil an alternate jersey under the Reebok Edge uniform system. It was done as an event at the RBC Center in Raleigh on September 10, 2008.
Instead of reworking the red and white version of their regular jersey, The Hurricanes went with a
black jersey with the secondary "hurricane flag" logo as the crest which includes a storm warning flag attached to a hockey stick and laid over a triangle, a tribute to the team's home in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina. The jersey also includes gray squares along the bottom of the jersey, where the red-and-black squares are on the team's primary sweaters and a gray and black version of the team's primary logo on each shoulder. The player's number is in red outlined in white on the sleeves and back, and the players name is in white on the back of the sweater. The socks and sleeves of the jersey feature red and gray v-shaped stripes and the black pants include the team's primary logo. The overall look resembles quite a bit like the primary home and away jerseys, but with some noticable exceptions.
